According to Powers, â€œThe issue of the Chibok girls and other adaptations is of huge priority to the U.S. And it was the issue I discussed at length with President Buhari today.
â€œWe had moved to provide the information and intelligence needed to the Nigerian authorities. We have in recent months been able to allocate additional information sharing platforms and additional surveillance to aid the fight against Boko Haram.
â€œWe will not rest. We will continue to deepen our partnership and be more effective without partners on the ground. We are determined to support Nigeria and other neighbouring countries to secure more rescues of adopted people and releases in the days and weeks ahead.â€
